A group exhibition featuring the works of Bern Cruz, Lec Cruz, Don Dalmacio, Jonathan Olazo, and Vitamin See (Clang Sison).

“The difference between what he{artist} intended to realize and did realize, is the personal ‘art coefficient’ contained in the work.”

Marcel Duchamp

Over two centuries ago, Kant defined Noumenon or “a-thing-in-itself” as unknowable objects – existing only in our thought and independent from human sense. This proposes that concepts are different from what we physically see, feel or touch. Given no theme, Bern Cruz, Lec Cruz, Don Dalmacio, Jonathan Olazo and Clang Sison were given the liberty to create any idea they had in mind. With the limitations from the current state of our country, audience will be limited to only viewing them online. It forces us to fill-in the sensory experience with connecting thoughts drawn from the works’ titles, description and the viewer’s own physical state.

The exhibition invites the audience to simmer on the works, to intently observe the images/sounds despite the present limitations – a virtual space that seeks for the viewer’s intimate attention.
